o just another life lesson

I closed the running water, shut the faucet completely and walked out.

From the exclamations and shouts of surprised delight that filled the house soon after, I gathered that I had 'finally fixed the pipe'.

Huh? what pipe?

The faucet silly! Noone was able to shut it off completely for oh maybe 3 weeks now!

The pipe was broken?

Ya, duh!

Oh (looks down at reddened hands), I didn't even realize.

You're the strongest, sabra, and that's why you were the only one able to fix it even though you didn't know it was broken!

No dear, I was the only one able to fix it simply because I was not aware that it was broken.

s.J. said...

yes.
s/t we fix what we don't know was broken.
and couldn't have fixed had we known.

wishes outspoken said...

its funny, usually it's the other way around. many times when we see something or somebody we immediately try to see how it can be fixed, even when there's nothing wrong with it! (like somebody once said 'if it aint broke then don't fix it!')

If you overlook the faults in something or someone, they're not really an obstacle?

Sometimes we label things or ppl in a negative way... Instead of giving them the chance to excel and succeed they are doomed to be what we expect of them. A quote I once heard, "We are what we think ppl think we are."

kol hakavod to the few of you who have been blessed sufficiently to come to the correct conclusion-that the story is just a 'story' (half from my head and half in real life..like much of this blog) and it is the last line that prompted the publication of the post.

p.s. oh and mom? i WANTED to clarify this earlier but wasnt allowed on the computer..ahem..does HASC ring any bells?
